Keep these ideas in mind:
  • Place items that are intended for display on shelves near the window, doorway or any area where you can find extra space.
  • Segregate items per material. Group stainless-steel pans together and plastic cups in another. Make sure you place them in an area that's easy to reach.

  • Opt to stack cups and saucers alternatively—to make it easier for you to get them.
  • Install vertical rods between shelves so you can store cutting boards and baking pans together.

  • Group dinnerware based on function: stack every day plates in an easy access shelf and porcelain plates reserved for occasional dinners on the topmost shelves.
  • Stack bows and pans together to save space. You can also place paper plates in between layers to avoid any scratches. 
  • Segregate kitchenware by size or shape so your pieces won't break when you pull one out.
